    Throttle response concerns

    Particulars: 2004.5 VW Jetta GLI 1.8T w/ 121,xxx miles
    Mods: Magnaflow 200 cell hi-flow cat, flowmaster muffler, ABD Cold Air, APR stage 1+ with 91 and 93 programs, Koni Coilovers, Autotech 25mm front sway bar, Eibach 28mm rear sway, ECS Tuning Tower strut bar, R32 Short shifter.
    Issue: I know that the 1.8T has a small lag when the gas pedal is pushed, however this last week I have noticed that the lag time is about 2-3 sec after which is nowhere near what the norm has been. She has nearly stalled several times because of it. I would like to know if there is anyone that may have some knowledge of this and what some of the problems/solutions I can take are. I am a DIY kind of person but some things I leave to the professionals. Money is an issue however I have to have a vehicle. I purchased the vehicle brand new in 2004 with 8 miles on it, I am the original owner so ever mile after the purchase is mine. Please let me know if anyone can help.
